I think I explained the reasoning in my last mail. Oh well, let me do it
again then... The helpbrowser will have to choose the language based on
the users locale, it thus needs to know how the files are organized
language-wise. I can imagine at least two possible solutions to this
problem. Either the mapping table knows about the available languages or
we encode the language into the directory structure as we did for 1.2.

Huh? I thought we were past this point about a month ago. What exactly
didn't you understand about it?

Actually it was Mitch's idea. Perhaps he should continue to explain it
then. I've explained it several times and you keep saying that you
dislike it although you didn't understand it. It will probably be best
if I keep myself out of this then and stop to try to work with you.
